State Trunk Highway 1
Reconstruction Between Ely and Isabella
Lake County, Minnesota

Trunk Highway 1, winding through the stunning Superior National Forest, follows the existing segments of the historically significant alignment to the extent feasible while straightening curves where necessary. Basing the design on a balanced evaluation of safety, performance, and context resulted in a highway that serves the competing needs of commercial, residential and recreational travel.
